The National Marine Electronics Association last week presented awards at its 2009 NMEA Convention & Expo, held in Fort Myers, Fla.

Simrad's BR24 Broadband Radar was named the first recipient of a new NMEA Technology Award by an independent panel of judges from Boating Writers International. The purpose of the new award is to recognize recently introduced products and single out the "best" based on a combination of innovative design, benefits to boaters, practicality and value.

Simrad's BR24 Broadband Radar won in a field of 14 nominated products.

Two honorable mentions were also granted, the first for the N2K Builder by Maretron, and the second for the Navionics Mobile iPhone application.

NMEA also named the recipients of the NMEA Product Awards that are voted on by NMEA member dealers, certified marine electronics technician dealers and technicians who repair and service marine electronics.
